Okay, cheapest GPU I can buy, that will MAX Bad Company 2 @ 1080P, but with... - Page 4

post #31 of 103
My GTX280 runs the game fine maxed (16xAF 2xAA HBAO) at 1920x1080... 60fps in every online game ive been in... i only got issues trying to scope through alot of smoke at close range with a rifle. so a 5850/5870/5770 should do nicely...

granted ive got at quad at 3.6ghz and im running DX9...

5770

Turning on HBAO actually decreases image quality, because the developers didn't come close to implementing it properly.

So turn it off. I run the game maxed in DX10 mode with 2xAA on my 4870.

This game really needs a quad. I would get a quad before you get a GPU. Read the results of dual vs quad on BC2. He got twice as many average FPS going from dual to quad.

Getting a quad and a 5770 would probably get you better FPS than your dual core with a 5850. Then Crossfire the 5770.

I switched to an i3 530 temporarily from a i5 750 and the performance drop wasn't much at all.


All the people recommending the GTX 470, he said what is the CHEAPEST card, the 5850 is considerably cheaper and still performs great :l

well put the i5 back in and get a 5850 (its the cheapest that will do what you want) at that resolution a quad will be needed to get the FPS your looking for

for what you want, a used 260 will do fine, you wanted cheap and maxed it will do it tried my roommates pc lastnight (athlonX2, GTX 260,4 Gb RAM), ran the resolution you want everything maxxed, my quad and GTX 275 did better, but not so cheap.(q9400, GTX 275, 8Gb RAM)

One of our own members benchmarked the game with 2 and 4 cores and he got around 100% improvements.
